Based in London and part of Evergreen Finance London Limited, MoneyBoat.co.uk are a transparent and flexible provider of high-cost short-term loans.

MoneyBoat.co.uk offer one of the cheaper high-cost short-term loans at an interest rate of 0.7% a day rather than the more common 0.8% (which is the price cap set by the FCA). Moneyboat.co.uk don't charge any fees for arranging the loan or repaying it early, however, there are charges for missed payments – this is a flat fee along with any daily interest that is accrued. MoneyBoat.co.uk are very transparent about these fees and they shouldn’t come as a surprise if you do happen to miss a payment.

General sentiment across the web for Moneyboat.co.uk is positive. At the time of writing, Moneyboat had scored 4.7/5 from the reviews consolidated on Choose Wisely from Trustpilot and Smart Money People. On Review Centre Moneyboat.co.uk has again scored 4.7/5, this time from almost 600 reviews. Across the board particular praise goes to their friendly staff and painless application process.

As with any high-cost short-term product the usual warning applies. If you have any doubt whether you can afford to repay your loan on time and in full, then don’t apply. By missing or being late with repayments, you will not only harm your credit file but could be subject to a number of fees, which can soon make things very expensive.

Overall verdict: If you’re set on a high-cost short-term loan then with strong reviews and a reasonable price point (for this type of product) Moneyboat.co.uk are a serious contender. Just ensure you can meet the repayments before you apply.
